  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device - smartphone, tablet or laptop. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

This live online class is tailored for people who are interested to learn one of the most beautiful and elegant styles - Italic script (lowercase).

No prior calligraphy or lettering experience is necessary, just lots of patience and enthusiasm! This workshop is suitable for those with no experience as well as those who want to refine their existing skills.

After an introduction to the materials, tools and how to set them up, you will learn:
- How to load the nib with inks
- Execution and ink flow problems
- Writing posture and pen grip
- Fundamental strokes of lowercase letters
- Forming the lowercase alphabets (minuscules) and thoroughly understanding the shapes of minuscule letters
- We will go through as many lowercase letters as we can within the 1.5-hour class time, the handout will include all the 26 lowercase letters, so you can practice at home yourself after class.

If you are left-handed please specify when you book as separate materials need to be arranged.
